This kitchen design treats the kitchen furniture in an architectural way to create some very strong Art Deco lines. The overall look was planned to look asymmetric, a common feature of Deco design. There is a lot of influence in these designs from the Deco architect Paul Frankl. However, to show you how even small changes or additions can change the whole look of the kitchen we've shown shown a symmetrical version of the same run below. There is a very nice balance with this version. But it's all about personal choice. These designs are intended as a series of ideas for planning your kitchen, they can be varied endlessly. The kitchen furniture is part of the wider kitchen design, and indeed house look, and needs to be planned to fit into the wider scheme. We've shown lots of finishing options below; they range from minimalist whites & greys, to classy woods to striking bold colours to the pastel colours of Miami buildings. This kitchen design shares many similarities with this kitchen.Part of the Deco look was the streamlined clean lines, which are well suited to modern kitchen preferences. This kitchen design was planned without handles, and relies on push catches to open doors & drawers. However, Deco style handles can be used for a more robust Deco look. Refridgerators only started to make an appearance in homes during the Deco era and were always freestanding models. So we showed this kitchen with a freestanding Smeg style retro fridge, but this could be integrated if preferred. I like ovens to be in tall units, where they are more practical for day to day use, but some people prefer them built under, and they can look more authentic that way.
As these are made bespoke we can do basically any option you want or the size you want. The doors & door panels can be painted, lacquered, wood, veneered, mirror, glass, etc.. The worktop equally can be whatever you want, from wood, granite, marble, Corian, glass, etc.. We can also adapt the design anyway you want, and you can also choose any colours or wood, or mix, you want. As it is made to order any elements can be adapted to whatever you want.
We'd be happy to design a new kitchen along these lines for you. If we're not near enough to you send us the room plan and measurements or your architects' plans - working at distance isn't a problem when designing the kitchen. We can do the design work, and help you with the furniture, appliances, worktops, colours, etc..
A white kitchen has been ever popular since fitted kitchens were first introduced to houses. White is the most popular colour for a modern minmal look. Greys can also be used, or mixed with white, for a similar look with a little more interest. The light colour scheme makes the architectural elements reced for a subtle look. Just changing the wall colour can have quite an impact on a light coloured kitchen.
When designing a Deco style kitchen it can be difficult deciding how to finish the furniture, as there were few fitted kitchens produced until near the end of the period. However, we can take influences from Deco furniture and apply that to the kitchen furniture. So you can introduce some of the woods popular during Art Deco'd heyday. You can either use 1 wood throughout, for a cleaner look, or mix a couple of woods for contrast, as shown above.
The above designs rely on typical hard Art Deco colours of black & white & bright red to produce a very striking kitchen look. The sharp contrast between the colours emphasises the architectural details of the furniture, for a dramatic high impact kitchen.
The above designs take their lovely pastel colours from the Deco buildings of Miami. They capture the warmth and exuberance of the warm climate and bring it into your kitchen.
